The CUInsight Network podcast: Strategy & marketing – Your Marketing Co.

Featuring Bo McDonald, President and CEO at Your Marketing Co

Thank you for tuning in to The CUInsight Network, with your host, Lauren Culp, President & CEO of CUInsight. In The CUInsight Network, we take a deeper dive with the thought leaders who support the credit union community. We discuss issues and challenges facing credit unions and identify best practices to learn and grow together.

My guest on today’s show is Bo McDonald, President and CEO at Your Marketing Co. The team at Your Marketing Co. seeks to empower credit union teams through strategic marketing, planning, and branding. Bo emphasizes the team’s mission to help credit unions avoid unnecessary mergers and thrive by engaging, educating, and retaining the next generation of members.

During our conversation, Bo discusses how credit unions can be curious about risks to tackle the fear of change. He talks about evaluating data and developing an appetite for risk as an organization to stay on top of trends and technology. Your Marketing Co. works with credit unions large and small to make a unique difference. Listen as Bo talks about approaches to remain relevant, and attract and retain members now and in the future.

As we wrap up the episode, Bo talks about wanting to be a better pasta maker, giving a shout-out to risk-healthy credit unions, and sharing his latest book recommendation. Enjoy my conversation with Bo McDonald!
